Buy a Book – Save a Dog event.
Did you know that the over crowding situation at our south bay animal shelters is so serious that many animals are having to be exported to other regions in order to find homes for them? And following the July 4th holidays, the number of runaways greatly increased – as it always does. The San Jose Animal Care facility received a jump of over 70 Chihuahua’s alone in just a few days.
Last week DawgHugger asked you to donate books to help our local shelters provide transportation for Chihuahuas and other smaller breeds to areas where they are in demand. (Local demand is at a stand-still.) Now, I’m inviting you to attend the book event to further the cause. Hey, maybe you can even buy your own donated book back so you can read those last two chapters!
So, remind me. What is the Event?
Buy a Book – Save a Dog event is hosted by the San Jose Animal Advocates – a Community Fundraiser to Help San Jose Shelter Dogs. Funds raised will go to PAWS for SJACS to transport of shelter dogs to Pacific Northwest AND a local dog rescue group The Prefect Dog which rescues shelter dogs who need extra tlc and medical attention.
When: This Saturday, July 23rd
Time: 11am to 3pm
Where: 1343 The Alameda, San Jose, CA on the sidewalk in front of Elefante Blanco Thrift Boutique
Why? The San Jose Animal Care facility, just south of downtown is experiencing an overwhelming intake of dogs, many of them Chihuahua mixes, and not enough local adopters. These dogs are in demand in the Pacific Northwest. With your financial book donation, PAWS for SJACS will be able to transport many more of these dogs to this region in an effort to save their lives. In addition, local dog rescue groups such as The Perfect Dogare trying desperately to pull as many dogs as they can from the shelter & find them good homes. These groups need funds for their care and are always looking for foster homes. Please check with the shelters listed below to learn how YOU can become a qualified DogFoster Parent.

BUY A BOOK _SAVE A DOG! So, come on down on Saturday, buy a book or DVD and expand your mind while helping these great groups save a dog’s life. And to those who so wonderfully donated,a hearty Woof of thanx. And for those of you who missed the call-for-donations, it’s not too late to clear out those stacks of clean books and offer them as a way to help out!
DawgHugger has just learned that as a bonus treat, Hannah, the big-hearted young girl who single handedly organized and ran a bake goods sale that raised over $500 to benefit local anaimals will be at the event to lend a hand. Be sure to greet her and say ‘thanks!” Maybe she’ll bring a few of those wonderful cookies she sold at her event so you can try one. One can hope! > Read about Hannah’s Bake Sale.
This event is endorsed and supported by the Lincoln Hound Society, a San Jose group promoting conscientious dog companionship and free-roam park advocates.
Woof for Now
